    extension rings for m43

    Hi everyone at Getdpi,

    Is there a technical reason that both Olympus and Panasonic don't offer extension rings/tubes for the micro four thirds format?

    There is one from Kenko/Tokina that supports auto focus, did anyone test that?

    best,

    geb

    I use the Kenko ones for Sony and it is similar (fly by wire). No tech issues. AF works but it will be slower because of the change in magnifications.

    Also got the 10mm and 16mm Kenko DG Extension Tubes [m43 mount].
    They work fine

    Kind regards.
